460 SLI vs 570 - Page 2

post #11 of 61
Thread Starter 
but with the option of another 570 in the future, that would destroy 460 SLI's. so it seems to be the best option for future proofing my machine. I plan on having this machine for a few years. I do other things as well. i am currently in game design/programming.

The i7 will do you justice then as well as having an upgrade path with the 570.

I would say go for 460 sli as 570's are known to crash and burn when overclocked so I would go for 460 sli.

Obvious cons of a 460 sli is it's louder and there's 2 cards.
I havent heard much of anything about this, is there any articles/threads about it or just things you've heard?

There was a thread on here about some 570's dying, but as I posted above in almost every single case it was due overvolting (passed 1.2v, which needs bios unlock) and disabling the power limiter while running something like Furmark.



Here's the thread....there's probably a better way to link this but I am unitiated into the mysteries and rituals of proper forum operation.

More pros:you get the performance of the sli setup in a single card and have the option for a second or third 570.
Sir that is so much wrong information right there...

SLI GTX 460 is better than a GTX 570. Not by a big chunck, but a quite noticeable one. Even the 768MB 460 SLI is better than a GTX 570.

Even though. I'll recommend a GTX 570 or (the single card solution), for power saving, temperatures, future proofing and compatibility.

Also, if you can find a 570 for less than 350, jump on it. If you overclock it, it is almost as good as a GTX 460 SLI (1gb version & ~5% difference).

Sorry my statement was a bit extreme but.. I have known various people who have used normal daily voltages and the vrms have crashed and burned.

This is less of a problem for 580's as they have more phases.

However you will probably be lucky and nothing will happen hopefully, just thought I would warn you.

Both set-ups are an excellent choice.

ok not trying to call you out on what your saying just wanna get the best information from as many sources as possible.. so would it be better just to get a single 580 and overclock.. then after a couple months grab another 580 over 570 sli overclock? basically just wait a couple months longer and go with a second 580 when I can afford it and be much safer with overclocks?

I doubt it, out of the thousands of OCN members theres 9 cases recorded, there is no way you know more people (like minded enthusiasts) than there are OCN members with 570s.
